Annette Valentine, Business Partnership Manager - Yorkshire and the Humber, on how improving workforce diversity can improve creative problem-solving.  

"We're facing some really big challenges over the next 30 years, from how we power our planet, to transport, and how we build the towns and cities of the future in a sustainable way.

"Solving those problems needs engineers coming up with creative solutions and all the research tells us that if those engineers are going to solve those problems, companies and the industry needs to bring in a diverse workforce of the future. And it's from that diversity coming into the industry, where those creative ideas will be generated and those creative solutions will be developed."
